Toothbrush/Miswak= Same sawaab?

Toothbrush/Miswak= Same sawaab?

Post by Truth-Searcher on Tue Jun 16, 2009 6:01 pm

Bismillah hirrahmaan nirrahim
A Molvi told me that the tooth brush is not the same as the miswaak, the tooth brush being inadequate to take the place of the miswaak as far as Thawaab is concerned. Is this right?
The tooth brush can never be an adequate substitute for the miswaak which is a very high and meritorious Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). During the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) alternatives to the miswaak, for example, toothpowder, cloth, etc., existed and were in use, but despite this the Books of the Shariah state that in the presence of the miswaak a substitute is not Sunnah, i.e. if a miswaak is available, Thawaab (Reward) will not accrue to one by using a substitute like a tooth brush. We shall progress further and claim that a tooth brush is not an adequate substitute for the miswaak even medically.
